As capable as any professional who graduates from any professional school. What exactly does an undergraduate education teach a medical doctor about medicine? Nothing. He learns everything about being a doctor inside of 8 semesters in graduate school.

I'll bet that your boss is an engineer and that is why you keep putting down engineers. You are a fucking retard. Fuck off.

No. Four semesters and then some are devoted during undergrad just to learn foundational knowledge of biology, anatomy, and chemistry. Most aspiring doctors never make it to medical school.

I have old college friends who are engineers (mechanical and industrial). I know what they do. While their jobs require education, in most cases they could as easily be done by a high school graduate with some years of experience. Incidentally, they work under engineers with more advanced degrees (the ones responsible for what happens). Except for one whose job isn't particularly complex.

I'm not saying there aren't great and capable engineers with just a bachelors. I'm just saying that 4 years of college can't make anybody unaproachably intelligent in a field compared to an experienced skilled worker in the same field.

Medical doctors usually get easy Bachelor's degrees like history. There isn't any biology or anything studied as an undergrad which helps them in medical school. Don't try to argue pre-med because most doctors do not go the pre-med route.

Engineers, on the other hand, devote all eight semesters to engineering. The first four semesters are math and science courses which form the foundation for the second four semesters which are all engineering courses. Engineering undergrad curriculum is different from all other undergrad curriculum. While non-engineering undergrads are studying general education courses like history and biology, engineers are studying math and science. Get a clue. You are just jealous that your friends are engineers and you are a high school dropout. Loser.

Don't get pissy just because your engineering degree earned you a spot in a chicken factory working on the conveyor belt system. Where the fuck did you get the idea that doctors don't do pre-med? Sure, some med schools might let students in with history degrees..... mostly in Venezuela.

I completed my masters last year and am working on a Ph.D. I did a B.Sc in Geography (GIS) and History with a minor in biology, as well as a BA in Anthropology with a minor in Geology. I also hold a certificate in osteology from the UK. Archeology is my thing.

No medical school requires pre-med. You are fucking retarded and I seriously doubt that you have any type of degree. First you were talking shit about degrees now you claim to have one? Bullshit.

Bullshit is your thing. Master's in what? Ph.D. in what? People that are studying advanced degrees don't go around saying masters or Ph.D. They state the field they have a degree in. I'm pretty sure that you have no degrees and are jealous of your friends who do. Loser.

I agree OP. Critical thinking is not taught in most programs. Besides intelligence is mostly determined by environmental factors before the age of 7.
 Quoting: cetra8


You must be a pedophile because that is the calling card of pedos to say that people are fully developed at a young age. Fucking idiot.

Critical thinking is taught at all levels. It's called math. I don't know of any educational program whether that does not require math. Grammar school, junior high, high school, college/university all require some form of math before graduating.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28667343


Primary math skills do not involve critical thinking. Critical thinking is the ability to consider multiple points of view and apply metacognition to those thoughts.

I was speaking of intelligence defined as the speed in which new concepts are understood, IQ. It can and does change over time. Also IQ has many serious flaws including flattening out different sorts of intelligences. However as I wasn't trying to write a book I felt the comment made sense. Apparently I was wrong. I apologize for assuming it was a self-evident statement.

Lastly I would point out that I never used the term "developed." You did. Fairly major physical changes through out the entire life cycle. No one is ever done "developing" physically. However standard neuroscience and physiology accepts that physical adulthood occurs around 26. The last organ to finish is the brain, specifically the frontal lobe at that point. If you are going to insult me, please do so cogently and on topic.

Cheers.
